Mild Steel properties and uses.
Mild Steel is an alloy of iron and carbon. The proportion of carbon contained has a considerable influence on the properties of the metal. The carbon content can vary from anywhere between 0.08% to 0.3%.
Mild Steel (or low carbon steel as it is often called) is stiff, strong and durable but the corrosion resistance is poor as it rusts easily; however, it can easily be painted or primed to protect it from rust. It is relatively cheap to buy so is a popular choice for most fabrications that require strength and durability.
We also stock a fully comprehensive range of metal paints to complete your project.
